You Are A Hero

And Heroes make good stories... because these stories - your story - are no good just being locked in your head. Its no good even being on some website, somewhere. It needs to be in front of the right person, in the right place, at the right time.

This project and website can't work without teenagers like you. Even if you don't your ventures have achieved much, I'd say your wring. Your story is inpsiring, and will excite and encourage others to start up their own businesses.

So below is a little form that will help you tell your story. Add pictures, links and videos - we'll publish the best one each day and promote out across the web. Over the coming months, we'll build up a huge bank of teen business success stories.
